contacted developer's email...got stupid replies that his meteotask worked despite his inability to provide me with a Tasker profile setup to use meteotask to pull up the damn weather...his other apps were confusing and seldom did anything worth buying them for...this is the app "not" to buy. Even the worst app usually works a little....not working at all is the lowest you can go folks. year later and not showing up even as purchased pro version
Has limited usefulness without being able to refresh the data from Tasker. I understand the need for rate limiting. It should be possible to turn off auto refresh and then trigger a refresh and get fresh weather details in tasker as long as the last refresh was 3+ hours ago. Right now there is NO WAY to get fresh details. You're perpetually dealing with stale info (up to 3 hours old) even if your task runs infrequently.
Can't refresh data from Tasker Great in principle, but running a "Get current weather" action in Tasker doesn't actually get the current weather; it just sets the local variables to the old data. You can refresh manually in the MeteoTask app, or automatically every 3 to 12 hours. Apparently this is a limitation of the web service used, but unfortunately, that means things like cloud coverage can up to 3 hours outdated. If that is OK with you, this app should work fine.
I really like the plugin except for one thing. When I set it to give me the snow fall in the last 3 hours, it just reads the variable "%mtsnow3h". Same for rainfall.
Nice idea and it works. Thank you for quick fix. I wish 6 stars rating was available here.
Only the current weather works I get "internal error" when trying to get a forecast.
